The Internet of Thing (IoT) as an emerging technology is a platform of interrelated devices, inanimate and animate entities that are equipped with Unique IDentifiers (UIDs), which can transfer data through Device-to-Device (D2D) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) protocols. This technology enables companies to automate processes and reduce labor costs. IoT also cuts down waste and makes the production and delivery of goods cheaper, as well as providing transparency to customer transactions. In financial and e-health applications, IoT devices can access to sensitive personal and banking information, which motivates hackers to steal this information. Likewise, since IoT elements typically communicate with each other via wireless channels, this technology is prone to various attacks such as eavesdropping, man-in-the-middle, Sybil, and jamming.
